Robotics Engineering - B.S.
The Robotics Engineering bachelor’s degree program provides a broad based foundation in current and evolving areas of robotics, automation and mechatronics engineering. The program focuses on the dynamics of the industry in robotic and mechatronic systems and applications.
Our immersive, lab-based approach integrates technology and engineering applications with contemporary developments in the field.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:
- Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology as required by the field of robotics engineering.
- Use engineering processes to analyze problems, formulate solutions, conduct simulations and experiments and interpret data.
- Apply written, oral, and graphical communication for the engineering field with consideration for ethical and global concerns.
- Use techniques, skills, industry related tools and technical literature to complete projects, analyze, and interpret data to formulate solutions to engineering problems.
- Integrate knowledge, tools, and problem solving skills to implement the testing of solutions to engineering problems.
Through our experiential education options, you’ll have the opportunity to gain work experience at a variety of industry partnership sites.

Students that do not place in MATH1040 Calculus I will need to take an extra course(s), MATH1020 Fundamentals of Algebra and/or MATH1030 Precalculus, as prerequisite; depending on placement. If needed this may count as an A&S or Free elective.
D Directed Experiential Education (DEE) opportunities are based on project availability with community partners and student eligibility. For more information, visit Experiential Education & Career Services (EE&CS).
G Students not meeting the requirements for experiential learning opportunities may take other course options with department or college chair and dean approval. Additional experiential opportunities may be available within your department. For more information, contact your faculty adviser.
IcTypically, internships require a minimum of six credits. Students interested in a 9 or 12-credit internship can apply additional experiential learning and free elective credits, if available. Students are strongly encouraged to contact a faculty adviser before scheduling internship and free elective credits.
# In addition to classes, free elective credits may be applied to a number of options such as internship, study abroad, Directed Experiential Education courses and courses in a specialization or minor as relevant. For Accelerated Master's program students, up to three graduate-level courses may apply. Students are strongly encouraged to contact a faculty adviser before scheduling free elective credits.
